Sanders likewise lauded the singer during an interview with Jimmy Kimmel on the host’s show describing her as “really smart” and “deeply concerned about what’s happening in this country.”
CARDI DOESN'T FEEL THE SAME FOR PRESIDENT TRUMP
Cardi B’s latest pronouncements about Sanders coincides with her recent attack against President Donald Trump. The rapper slammed POTUS for turning a blind eye on police brutality directed towards black people.
She resigned to the fact that as long as Trump is president, the issue will remain unsolved.
Cardi clearly has a lot of concern for her community making her an artist who not only influences through her music but uses her voice for a greater cause. We wish her success in her future endeavors in making this country a better place.
